In MediaWiki-Vagrant there is a role Flow which depends on the role centralauth. After enabling Flow (and provisioning and waiting for an hour) you'll end up with a farm consisting of

MediaWiki-Vagrant uses a variation of the MWMultiVersion wikifarm configuration used by the WMF production wikis. This support was initially added two years ago with the introduction of role::centralauth. It was later made the default configuration system so that even when no roles are enabled and only a single wiki is provisioned that wiki uses the multi-wiki config system.

I think that @MarkAHershberger means rather than generically any multi-wiki setup with some amount of shared code/config.
